Non-surgical Nose Job Procedures to Reduce Nose Size?

#nonsurgical #nosejob - #non-surgical #rhinoplasty realities
In a non_surgical nose job fillers are injected into the nose to make it look better. Better may mean a more symmetric nose or a more defined nose or one with a higher bridge or a more projected tip, etc. But in all these cases the nose is actually "larger" since more has been added and nothing has been removed. In patients who are ideal candidates for a non surgical rhinoplasty this addition and "enlargement" is actually beneficial and makes the nose look so much better overall.
In your case its impossible to determine what is best for you based on this single picture you posted but from the look of this picture you could add a little bit of Restylane non-surgically above your bump or ideally take down the bump surgically. Also from your picture it looks like addition of a chin implant would balance your face and actually make your nose look smaller. But I would need to see more photos and examine you for a more precise analysis and diagnosis.
Non surgical rhinoplasty isn't for big noses
Unfortunately injectable rhinoplasty by its very nature can't make your nose smaller. Very occasionally a 'liquid rhinoplasty' can create the illusion of a smaller nose, but this is rare. Injectable rhinoplasty is for creating straighter nasal bridges, straightening slightly bend noses and for 'touch ups' after rhinoplasty.
Reducing nose size
In the case of a slightly larger nose and a short chin, increasing chin projection with an implant or a sliding genioplasty will help to improve facial harmony even if a reduction rhinoplasty cannot be done at the time.

Your nose appears too large for a non-surgical rhinoplasty procedure.
I reviewed your profile photo. Your nose is a bit on the large side, and you have a mildly retrusive chin which makes your nose appear large.
I think your best option for the most pleasing aesthetic would be rhinoplasty surgery to lower your bridge, and deproject your tip. Try to consult a specialist that performs both rhinoplasty surgery, and non-surgical rhinoplasty so you could see the difference with computer imaging. You should consider chin implant surgery as well.
I hope this is helpful for you.
Non surgical rhinoplasty
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty for the Big Nose
Technically it is not possible to reduce the size of the nose with a "non-surgical" rhinoplasty. However, a non-surgical rhinoplasty can make some noses look smaller. Some examples of change the shape to create the appearance of a smaller nose:
1. A nose with a deep radix and a large bony hump.
2. A nose with an deep angle between the upper lip and the bottom of the nose (acute naso-labial angle).
Based on the one profile photograph, I would recommend an endo-nasal reduction rhinoplasty. However, in general it is best to consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for more specific advice and photo-morphing to obtain the best results.
Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty: Benefits and Limitations
Injecting fillers, such as Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse, in the nose can be helpful for certain patients who would benefit from additional volume in certain specific areas. Adding filler can cause certain noses to appear less deviated, improve symmetry, and fill indentations after prior rhinoplasty. Sometimes, adding filler above a hump can make it appear less prominent.
However, there is no nonsurgical way to make a nose smaller. I would recommend that you seek consultation with a surgeon who performs both traditional (surgical) rhinoplasty as well as nasal fillers. That way, you would have access to all the different options out there for your nose. Computer imaging is a very valuable exercise during the consultation, for you to express your aesthetic goals and for the surgeon to express what she/he could do with fillers vs. rhinoplasty. Lastly, from your photo, it appears that you may benefit from a chin implant as well, as a more projecting chin will make your nose appear more balanced with the rest of your face.
A non surgical rhinoplasty cannot reduce the physical structure of a nose
You should consult a plastic surgeon for a full examination to conclude the best procedure for you.
Non-Surgical Nose Job Won't Reduce a Big Nose
However, the use of fillers to balance facial proportions or the use of cheek or chin implants can create better balance to facial features, making the nose fit the face better
Surgery is the only option for a large nose
